Do "half-blood" relatives inherit the same as "whole blood" relatives under Tennessee law?

Posted on Apr 18 2013 7:56AM by Attorney, Jason A. Lee

T.C.A. § 31-2-107 provides that "half blood" relatives inherit the same as they would if they were "whole blood" relatives.  T.C.A. § 31-2-107 provides as follows:


Relatives of the half blood inherit the same share they would inherit if they were of the whole blood.


As a result, anytime there are “half blood” relatives in an inheritance situation, keep in mind that the fact they are “half blood” has no bearing on whether they can inherit under Tennessee law.
